As we get a chill in the air here in the north, we need to start thinking about prepping for winter. I like to do as much as I can before it gets to cold.
Go through your garage and take all paints into the house. Freezing can ruin your paint.
If you have grass seed or other seeds in your garage place them in mouse proof containers to avoid attracting them to your garage.
Walk the perimeter of your home and seal any cracks to keep mice out.
Purchase a fuel stabilizer for your lawn mower and follow the directions for use.
Remove and drain all of your hoses then prep your spigots for winter.
Clean out your gutters to avoid water issues.
Clean out your car and make sure you have window scrapers in the car. Also, prepare your winter survival kit for your car. Depending on how far out of a city you travel, here are some suggestions for your kit; a shovel, flashlight with extra batteries, water, snack food, matches and candles extra hats, socks and mittens, first aid kit, sleeping bag or warm blanket, pocket knife, tow chain, and cat liter or sand for traction.
